 I know right now the Kjetil has filters in place so people not on the mailing
lists can not send mail to them (to prevent spam and the like, which is a good
idea.)  I don't know how possible it would be (and Kjetil would have to
comment), but perhaps being on any mailing list should be enough authorization
to send mail to one of the different ones, even if it is not the one you are on.

 So a person on crossfire-playing could send to crossfire-programming even if
they are not on it without problems.

 That works just as well.

 That was my revised idea.  It basically splits the current list into 2 fairly
distinct new lists.  If down the road further splitting is deemed reasonable,
then it can be done.
